More active weather for travelers after Christmas
A much more active pattern is insight after the Christmas holiday when a strong storm system impacts the Midwest.
Areas of rain will break out by late Wednesday night and continue through Friday. Even a few rumbles of thunder are possible come Thursday with highs that day reaching the 50s. All in all, rainfall amounts could top over an inch in some spots! Farther north, heavy snowfall and wind is still anticipated for portions of the Dakotas, Minnesota and northern Wisconsin. Amounts could range in these areas between 8 and 15 inches of snowfall with winds clocked around 45 mph creating blizzard-like conditions.
